Like most New Jersey personal injury law firms, we take on all our personal injury clients on a contingency fee arrangement, but there can be a lot of confusion about what this legal payment structure means and whether you end up paying more than you thought at the end of your case. When you hire us as your New Jersey personal injury lawyers, you don’t pay us unless we win, and our fees are fair, and our service is outstanding.
Contingency Fee Arrangements FAQ
In a personal injury contingency fee arrangement, the legal fees of your case are contingent on how much your case ultimately settles (or a verdict) for. Here are some frequently asked questions about this type of payment plan:
You pay nothing up front: expensive medical bills, missed work, disability needs and much more—many of personal injury victims are suffering financially following their accident and would not be able to afford a lawyer if the fees needed to be paid up front. We know this and that is one of the reasons why we take personal injury clients on a contingency fee basis—we work hard to get you paid and have the financial resources to cover costs and delay our payment.
Highly motivating: This type of legal payment plan is highly motivating because the more money we are able to get you, the more money we get—everyone wins.
Clear percentage: At Sarofiem & Antoun LLC, we are very upfront about what the ultimate contingency fee percentage will be at the end of a winning case and always happy to answer questions.
How Much Does a New Jersey Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?
Many people search for this answer because of course you want to know what you will be paying in the end. So how much does a New Jersey personal injury lawyer cost? The answer depends on how much your case ends up being worth. For instance, if you had a dog bite case that settles for $100,000 and your agreed upon contingency fee percentage is 33%, then your legal fees would be $33,000. Ultimately, you want to make sure that you are working with a law firm that will work hard to maximize the value of your case and is upfront in the beginning to help create a clear understanding of their fee percentage.
